§ 5. Mr. Boothby
asked the Minister of Labour whether, in view of the acute shortage of agricultural labour and, in particular, the scarcity of domestic help which is essential to efficient farming, he will now direct an increasing number of young women to domestic service on the farms.
§ Mr. Boothby
Is the Minister aware that, although they may have priority, there is an immense shortage of domestic help on farms to-day, and that, without some more domestic help, the efficiency of our agricultural industry must be impaired?
